Improved Design Changes

The new 2013 - 2014 ThinkPads feature quality design changes that focus on real-life experiences with input from over 900 people in 9 different countries. Improvements in LCD design and smaller internal antenna result in a reduced bezel size—actually 20% smaller than previous generations—yet our ThinkPads deliver legendary reliability and meet or exceed rigorous military-specification standards. Plus these notebooks lie flat, at a 180-degree angle, adding enhanced flexibility for use and sharing.

Security & Manageability Features

Intel® vPro, Computrace, encrypted hard disk drive, BIOS port locking, Trusted Platform Module, and more, ensure your business-critical data is secure and easily managed.

MIL-SPEC / Military-Specification Testing

Validates the ruggedness, durability, and quality of ThinkPad products by testing against eight parameters: high pressure, humidity, vibration, high temperature, temperature shock, low pressure (15,000 ft), low temperature, and dust.

Award-Winning Keyboard Further Enhanced for Windows 10

Full-sized and spill-resistant, the legendary ThinkPad ergonomic keyboard is renowned for its full array of keys, excellent feel, and TrackPoint® pointing device. And now it's optimized for Windows 10 with convenient multimedia buttons, function-lock capability, and immediate access to view apps. Plus, a larger, smooth TrackPad with 5-point click integration can be configured multiple ways through Settings. Plus, the L540 also includes a numeric keypad.

Long Battery Life

Enjoy all-day computing with **up to 11 hours unplugged on the standard 6-cell 56 Wh battery—

whether you're working on-the-go or simply enjoying downtime, you get more than a full day on a single charge.

High Resolution Display

Enjoy visuals on a dazzling high resolution display, with HD being our standard offering. The L540 offers a 15.6-inch antiglare HD (1366 x 768) or FHD (1920 x 1080) display.

Hinge-Based Latching & Active Protection System

Thinner and stronger, new ThinkPad laptops include hinge-based latching, which features a cleaner, modern easy-open design. Tension in the hinges keeps the cover closed during unexpected drops. Plus, Active Protection System (APS), which works with traditional magnetic HDDs, detects when the system is dropped and reacts by stopping the hard drive to protect your data.

Integrated 720p HD Webcam & Dual Noise-Cancelling Microphones

Enjoy superior web conferencing on your L540, which includes a low-light sensitive 720p HD webcam with wide-angle viewing and face-tracking, dual noise-cancelling microphones with configurations for crystal-clear private and conference mode VOIP meetings, plus, convenient multimedia keys for quick and easy access to microphone, speaker, and camera controls.

Dolby® Speakers With Advanced Audio™

This suite of audio technologies enables your ThinkPad to deliver a crisp, clear surround sound experience over its built-in stereo speakers. The technology increases audio clarity for VOIP applications, maximizes volume output without distortion, and improves dialogue clarity when watching videos.

Fast Data Transfer

Move data quickly between the L540 and other devices with SuperSpeed USB 3.0, which enables up to 10 times faster file transfer, allowing for lightning-fast copying of large media files, as well as seamless connections between audio- and video-related peripherals.

Greenest ThinkPad Available

ThinkPad L Series continues the legacy of saving energy to lower power consumption costs. With numerous environmental certifications like EPEAT® Gold, ENERGY STAR, ULE Gold Sustainable Product Certification, up to 10% post-consumer content, and low halogen, the L540 is good for the planet and your bottom line.

Budget Protection

Ensure cost-effective, worry-free enjoyment of your L540 with accidental damage protection, which keeps you covered in the event of accidental damage caused by drops or spills that occur under normal working conditions.

FAQs

Am I eligible for finance?

The short answer is, you probably are! Our credit provider carries out credit checks and has a few requirements for offering finance but please make sure you meet these simple requirements

  • Your order is £99 or more
  • You are 18 years or older
  • You are a UK resident, and have been for more than 3 years
  • You can make regular direct debit payments
  • You are in regular employment, or permanently live with a spouse who is in regular employment
  • Have a credit/debit card in your name that is registered to your current address
  • You have a good credit history, and have received no CCJs

How long does it take to apply?

That depends how fast you can type! There are no lengthy applications to complete, you're just asked a few short questions and you can get an instant decision.

What details should I have to hand?

You don't need much - if you already have a PayPal account then usually you'll just have a few questions to answer, if you don't have a PayPal account you just need to register with them.

What if I am declined for finance?

When you're applying for finance you always need to remember that there is a possibility you will be declined. This can often be caused by one of a number of reasons, but usually it will be caused by a negative credit score or a default on an existing loan. We've done our best to make it as easy as possible for our customers that aren't successful in applying to continue their order and pay by Credit Card, Debit Card, PayPal Wallet or Bank Transfer - it really is as simple as clicking "complete my order using a different method". And as always, if you have any concerns please do get in touch.
